7 agaffney 521 17 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
8     Reverted change to ArchTemplate and added support for commented line in old
9     code.
10    
11 agaffney 518 16 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
12     Changed _edit_config() to modify value in-place instead of commenting out and
13     adding the new value to the end of the file.
14    
15 codeman 512 15 Apr 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
16     Back. Did the docuementation thang for ArchTemplate and ClientConfiguration.
17     Also updated TODO list.
18    
19 agaffney 509 14 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
20     Use blackace's one-liner to add comments for all function for use with
21     pythondoc.
22    
23 agaffney 503 13 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
24     Moved 'end >= device_sectors' check out of loop to check for next partition's
25 agaffney 505 start point (thanks to Marco Djukic). Fix >4 primary partitions on non-x86.
26 agaffney 507 Partitioning code now tracks start/end of extended for placing logicals. End
27     point of logical is now adjusted along with start.
28 agaffney 503
29 agaffney 497 11 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
30 agaffney 501 Finish overhaul of backend partitioning code. Fixed all bugs that stood in
31 agaffney 502 the way of partitioning from a blank disk. Add int() around access to minor
32     key in partition information due to new partition code leaving them as float.
33 agaffney 497
34 agaffney 494 10 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
35 agaffney 495 tidy_partitions() function in GLIStorageDevice. Tweaks to tidy code
36 agaffney 494
37 agaffney 492 9 Apr 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
38     Major GLIStorageDevice overhaul...all MB now instead of sectors.

48 codeman 476 fixed the way set_timezone works. added hotplug/coldplug for livecd-kernel
49 codeman 479 added --emptytree to stage2. fixed ethx not being added to runlevel defalt.
50 codeman 475
51 codeman 467 31 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
52     Fixed indent problem in GLICController
53    
54 agaffney 463 30 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
55     Check for disklabel type "loop" and use the device name without a minor.
56    
57 agaffney 453 29 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
58     Remove /tmp/compile_output.log and /var/log/install.log when install is
59 agaffney 456 complete. Added code to (hopefully) keep 2nd thread running after install.
60 agaffney 458 Patch from zahna for extra arguments to the kernel. Patch from zahna to add
61 agaffney 460 get_eth_info() function. Remove most of content in amd64ArchTemplate and
62 agaffney 461 make it inherit from x86Archtemplate. kernel_args -> bootloader_kernel_args
63 agaffney 453
64 agaffney 451 28 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
65 agaffney 452 Added 'append_log=True' to all spawn() calls using logfile=. Append to log
66     when unpacking tarball.
67 agaffney 451
68 codeman 443 28 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
69 codeman 446 rewrote filesystem_tools. looks like it works so ripping out all the old
70     filesystem_tools code.
71 codeman 443
72 codeman 427 26 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
73     Changed the print statements to logging in the partitioning BE code.
74     the logger may need to be imported to the x86archtemplate. unknown yet.
75 codeman 432 Added the finishing_cleanup function.
76 codeman 433 added a fix to the logger from BenUrban
77 codeman 427
78 codeman 422 25 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
79     changed InstallProfile to remove is_uri check on kernel, stage, and portage
80     URIs. The blank uri check has been commented out.
81 codeman 426 ripped out error checking of set_services. this is done by _add_to_runlevel.
82 codeman 422
83 agaffney 419 25 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
84     set_stage_tarball_uri() doesn't raise an exception on a blank string.
85    
86 agaffney 415 24 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
87     GRP-ish quickpkg code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
88 agaffney 416 the install profile if available. Commented out spawn() debugging prints
89 agaffney 415
90 codeman 409 23 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
91     small changes to setup_network_post. moved adding to runlevel of net.x to
92     after the device gets symlinked. added domainname runlevel command.
93    
94 agaffney 401 23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
95 agaffney 408 minor fix (hopefully) to livecd-kernel code. Removed call to mkvardb in
96 agaffney 412 livecd-kernel code as it's now done by catalyst. Switch _emerge() call to
97     spawn() call in livecd-kernel code to pass environment variables.
98 agaffney 414 livecd-kernel code pulls PKGDIR and PORTAGE_TMPDIR from make.conf info in
99     the install profile if available.
100 agaffney 402
101     23 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
102 agaffney 401 Added code to build_kernel() and emerge_kernel_sources() in ArchTemplate
103     to handle installing the livecd kernel into the new system.
104    
105 codeman 395 22 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
106     should emerge hotplug and coldplug before adding them to runlevel.
107    
108 codeman 390 21 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
109 codeman 395 took chroot out of grub_install command.
110    
111     21 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
112     Changed chroot wrapper code in spawn() to write the wrapper the python way
113     instead of the bash way to avoid quote conflicts. Added
114 agaffney 392 'logfile=self._compile_logfile' to a number of spawn() calls. Added new
115 agaffney 394 hash_password() function to GLIUtility. Remove command to 'rm /tmp/spawn.sh'
116     as it breaks the piping.
117 codeman 390
118 codeman 387 20 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
119     Added the amd64ArchitectureTemplate, mostly a copy of x86 without lilo.
120    
121 agaffney 385 20 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
122     Added _get_packages_to_emerge() to GLIArchitectureTemplate and calls in
123 agaffney 386 stage1() and stage2(). Added 'origminor' parameter to GLIStorageDevice and
124 agaffney 389 GLIInstallProfile.
125 agaffney 385
126 agaffney 379 19 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
127 agaffney 384 Fixed a couple bugs in add_netmount() in GLIInstallProfile. spawn() outputs
128     to the actual tty8 with display_on_tty8 flag. Compile output logfile moved
129     into /mnt/gentoo in prepare_chroot()
130 agaffney 379
131 agaffney 375 18 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
132     Add sigunmask.c contributed by d_m (on freenode) to counteract python's
133 agaffney 377 retarted behavior regarding threads and signals. Add code to convert MB/%/*
134     to start/end sectors
135 agaffney 375
136     17 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
137 agaffney 374 Add 2>&1 to cmd in spawn()
138    
139 agaffney 369 16 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
140     Modified GLIUtility.exitsuccess() to work with return value from
141 agaffney 371 commands.getstatusoutput instead of os.waitpid(). spawn() automatically
142     creates wrapper script for commands run inside chroot so multiple commands
143 agaffney 373 and redirection can be used. Change exitsuccess() back. Added 'chmod a+x'
144     for the generated script from spawn()
145 agaffney 369
146 codeman 361 16 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
147     Removed default values for stage tarball URI and portage tree URI from
148     InstallProfile. These should be set by the FEs. also added services step to
149     ArchTemplate and coldplug/hotplug runlevels to the genkernel step.
150     Possibly fixed CC DHCP bug with -n. (thx agaffney)
151    
152 codeman 359 14 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
153     Small fix for setting the default gateway. Also added feature to dialogfe.
154    
155 agaffney 357 7 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
156     Switched spawn() over to commands.getstatusoutput() instead of fork/waitpid
157    
158 codeman 345 1 Mar 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
159 codeman 346 Fixed a bunch of true -> True typos. lots of em
160 codeman 347 only write new resolv.conf if there are dns servers listed.
161 codeman 345
162 agaffney 343 1 Mar 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
163     Commented out 'display_on_tty8=True' in start_portmap()
164    
165 codeman 341 18 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
166     added progress bar to dialogfe and fix logger bug in ArchTemplate.
167    
168 agaffney 337 18 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
169 agaffney 339 Created GLISayWhat module. Renamed GLISayWhat to GLILocalization. Moved
170     lang parameter to __init__()
171 codeman 331

178 agaffney 322
179 codeman 319 6 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
180 codeman 320 check for dhcp in the network stuff and emerge it if it is.
181     added quickpkg to TODO list
182 codeman 319
183 codeman 318 5 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
184     Changed the raising of 'warning' exceptions to a simple log of the error
185     so that the installer can continue.
186    
187 codeman 314 3 Feb 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
188     Some big changes. First, changed most output to display_on_tty8.
189     Second, added log lines to all templates. Some smaller fixes such as typos.
190     Also did some cleanups of old commented lines.
191    
192 agaffney 310 1 Feb 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
193 agaffney 312 Changed tty8 output to a fifo. Minor GLIStorageDevice fix thanks to BenUrban.
194 agaffney 313 Undo change with fix. Escaping fix in GLIStorageDevice.py
195 agaffney 310
196 codeman 306 31 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
197     more updates to TODO list. hopefully we'll soon start removing items instead
198     of adding them.
199    
200 agaffney 301 29 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
201     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.get_max_sectors_for_resize() works
202    
203 codeman 293 27 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
204 codeman 295 updated TODO list. (again)
205 codeman 293
206 codeman 286 25 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
207     changed output of portmap start to display_on_tty8.
208     fixed bootloader for udev and multiple kernels
209 codeman 288 fixed custom kernel config (again)
210 codeman 286
211 codeman 281 22 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
212     changed default value of CC._enable_ssh to True because this is smart.
213 codeman 282 added code to allow custom kernel .config. may be unstable and break. sorry.
214 codeman 281
215 agaffney 278 21 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
216     partition() now waits until after it checks for partition flags before delete
217     the partitions :P
218    
219 agaffney 271 19 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
220 agaffney 272 Updated TODO. swapon failure it temporarily not an error. swapon is an error
221 agaffney 277 again. is_uri() check only performed on portage_tree_snapshot_uri if it isn't
222     blank.
223 agaffney 271
224 codeman 268 19 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
225     Various fixes related to the add_users function. Still not yet finished.
226 codeman 269 Added things to the TODO list. Lets start using that!
227 codeman 268
228 agaffney 264 18 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
229     Added code to x86Template to format newly created partitions. Also added
230 agaffney 265 some error checking code. GLIStorageDevice passes 'minor' with data to
231 agaffney 266 InstallProfile. Added partition() call back in ArchTemplate. Fixed NFS
232     mounting code.
233 agaffney 264
234 codeman 263 18 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
235     Took out unnecessary setting of random livecd root password. the cd already
236     sets it randomly.
237    
238 agaffney 255 15 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
239     Took out an unneeded step from CC's run()
240    
241 codeman 248 15 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
242     Attempt at detecting and adding windows partitions to lilo.
243    
244 codeman 235 14 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
245 codeman 237 Added lilo code and cleaned up lilo code. also do_partitioning renamed to
246     partition. fixed misc exit_status => exitstatus typo.
247 codeman 235
248 agaffney 230 11 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
249 agaffney 232 Added basic code for resizing filesystems with pyparted. Fixed code for
250     resizing ntfs and ext2/3.
251 agaffney 230
252 agaffney 228 10 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
253     Fixed partition() in x86Template so that it scans through logicals and deletes
254 agaffney 229 before deleting containing extended partition. Also clears partition table to
255     be safe before third pass.
256 agaffney 228
257 codeman 226 08 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
258     Added mount_network_shares. not able to test it from this computer.
259     will test when i get back to school.
260     also added start_portmap to the client_controller as an always-do.
261     agaffney says this is needed for NFS mounts to work.
262    
263 agaffney 225 08 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
264     Partial rewrite of partitioning code in x86Template. No longer shells out to
265     parted to perform actions, now uses all pyparted calls. Code "works" in a
266     test, but still needs lots of TLC. Also modified tests/install.py to work
267     with x86Template and GLIClientConfiguration.
268    
269 agaffney 221 07 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
270     Initial move of partitioning code from ArchTemplate to x86Template.
271 agaffney 220
272 codeman 219 07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
273 agaffney 224 Added grp_install and services to InstallProfile. forgot about the set_root_password
274 codeman 222
275     07 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
276 codeman 219 Fixed a few more edit_configs. fixed a chroot multicommand bug thanks to agaffney.
277     Test Install ran very well (skipping partitioning).
278    
279 codeman 213 05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
280 codeman 215 My mid-day update. rewrote mount_local_partitions for order of mounting. fixed prepare_chroot
281 codeman 216 rewrote configure_fstab and install_bootloader for new partition format. fixed a few _edit_configs.
282     some may still have eluded me.
283 codeman 215
284     05 Jan 2005; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
285 codeman 213 Overhauled the entire ArchTemplate and did a lot of other misc fixes in order to test it.
286     Just finished mount_local_partitions in GLIArchitectureTemplate
287    
288 agaffney 212 05 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
289     Added get_num_sectors() to GLIStorageDevice.
290    
291     04 Jan 2005; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
292 agaffney 205 GLIStorageDevice now tracks partition boundaries in sectors instead of cylinders.
293 agaffney 208 Also now ignores <=100 sectors for free space. Removed remaining depends stuff
294     from GLIInstallProfile.
295 agaffney 205
296 agaffney 188 20 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
297     GLIStorageDevice returns "unknown" instead of "" for get_type()
298    
299 agaffney 183 19 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
300 agaffney 184 Added get_extended_partition() to GLIStorageDevice. Rewrote get_logicals() to
301     actually work. Commented out resizability checking code for speed.
302 agaffney 183
303 agaffney 174 17 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
304     Switched to using dumpe2fs to determine free space left in ext2/3 filesystem in
305     GLIStorageDevice at the suggestion of plors
306    
307 agaffney 162 10 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
308     Added a function to GLIUtility to pull a value from a make.conf-style config
309 agaffney 163 file. Minor type fix to GLIInstallProfile.py
310 agaffney 162
311 agaffney 160 09 Dec 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
312 agaffney 163 Added code in GLIArchitectureTemplate.py to write netmounts into fstab. Separated
313     network mounts from partition data structure in GLIInstallProfile
314 agaffney 161
315 agaffney 147 27 Nov 2004; Andrew Gaffney <agaffney@gentoo.org>
316     Changed the way GLIStorageDevice.py determines the amount a ext2/3 filesystem
317     can be resized.
318    
319 codeman 91 27 Oct 2004; Preston Cody <codeman@gentoo.org>
320     Added some of the final functions to GLIInstallTemplate.
321     Yes this project is still active despite rare use of the Changelog!
322    
323 npmccallum 58 11 Jun 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
324     Added the GLIPartitionTools.py file. This is a temporary insertion of
325     partitioning tools that will eventually go into their own package.
326    
327 npmccallum 33 27 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
328     Added InstallProfileTODO.txt. Added GLIClientConfiguration.py (contains run-time
329     for the program). Added __init__(install_profile, client_configuration) to
330     GLI.InstallProfile. This sets install_profile and client_configuration once so as
331     to avoid constantly passing stuff every time we call a method.
332    
333 npmccallum 28 26 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
334    
335     Added another private method to GLI.InstallTemplate. _edit_config() modifies config
336     files without messing up all the other stuff in them. This will be used for making
337     changes to make.conf, rc.conf, /etc/conf.d/net, etc...
338    
339 npmccallum 27 25 Mar 2004; Nathaniel McCallum <npmccallum@gentoo.org>
340    
341     Added GLI.InstallTemplate framework. This is not yet functional. However, it does
342     have a few basic things. I added two private methods. One is _depends(). This
343     will be used for dependency checking (ie. unpacking a tarball requires that
344     partitioning has been done). The other is _exec_in_chroot(). This is the exact
345     same syntax as os.system(), however, instead of being run in the liveCD
346     environment, it runs in the chroot. This requires a bit of fork() magic, so I
347     isolated the code. Hope to work more this week to get this class formed...
348    
349 esammer 7 14 Feb 2004; Eric Sammer <esammer@gentoo.org>
350    
351     Added SAX parsing. Made GLI.InstallProfile a subclass of xml.sax.ContentHandler for
352     obvious reasons. Switched kernel_modules and users to be lists instead of tuples
